Celine Dion Reveals Why She Was Weeping During Valentino Fashion Show This Year

Celine Dion is on the cover of Elle magazine’s June 2019 special subscribers cover, on newsstands May 21!

Here’s what the 51-year-old superstar had to share with the mag…

On weeping at Valentino during the spring 2019 couture season: “The first song was ‘The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face,’ which was part of my wedding. The music starts and this dream comes, a lady, a beautiful rose. All you saw was her face in this amazing pink gown…It was so emotional; I was speechless. I didn’t want to cry. I was worried Mr. Valentino was looking at my reaction. To be honest, it felt like I was making a scene, but I was overwhelmed.”

On discovering herself as she’s gotten older: “Now I am discovering myself more and more. I am a woman assuming her own destiny, full of energy and in love with life. It’s never too late to start. At 51, I have the sense that I am at my pinnacle!”

On her approach to her new music: “I had a great time when I recorded 20 years ago, but now I really feel like I can speak up. If I’m not part of my own project, what am I really doing here? Crying at Valentino and spending money on clothes?”
